If it is genetically modified then it is not an organic food. Organic food is naturally grown.

The difference between organic and genetically modified food is like the difference between night and day. GMO food is of unknown effect when consumed by the body, and it is presumed to be dangerous. Organic food is as natural as food gets, with no pesticides or any genetically modified organisms. Organic food tends to taste a lot better than GM food.

No, growing food organically has no connection to biotechnology. Biotechnology produces food that is genetically modified. Organic foods are not genetically modified.

Organic apples aren't sprayed with pesticides/ herbicides, grown using chemical fertilizers in the soil, and are non-GMO (non genetically modified)

They are genetically modified.

No, they are [still] quite Organic.

organic Cotton is grown without using pesticides from plants which are not genetically modified

Cultivation that does and does not rely upon non-synthesized, non-synthetic inputs and resources is the difference between genetically modified farming and organic farming. In the first case, farm animals and crops exist in forms and with traits whose expression results from laboratory experiments. In the second, they go through their life cycles and natural histories without intervention other than that is based upon natural, non-chemical, non-synthetic, organic procedures and processes.

hard to say because it is not always stated on the packaging if it has been genetically modified.Answer:60 to 70% of food in grocery stores are genetically modified. You don't know for sure, but most of what you eat has been genetically modified (unless you eat only organic foods, or something).

Organically grown foods are not (trans)genetically modified, meaning they are not what is considered GMOs.

By GM, you probably mean genetically modified. That means the chicken's DNA has been modified to make it "better". A typical improvement is faster than average growth rate. The normal chicken has not been genetically modified. Organic chickens are not only not genetically modified themselves, but are fed food that has not been genetically modified either. These are considered the healthiest, but are also the most expensive. The GM has nothing to do with General Motors.

no, only genetically modified fruits and veggies are seedless

Yes you can. A seed is considered organic if it is grown without the use of chemicals.

Sadly, almost all the food out there is genetically modified(gm). You can find more natural foods by purchasing organic or all natural products, but they are not guaranteed to be gm free.

That the one adheres to foods whose inputs and outputs are non-genetically modified and non-synthetically treated and the other tolerates foods which may be subjected to the above-mentioned conditions and which may not be of local or on-site provenance is the difference between an organic and an non-organic diet. An organic diet depends upon local foods whose growing, harvesting, and processing must be on-site whereas a non-organic diet makes no such demands prerequisites to consumption.

There is actually no such thing as genetically modified organics. Organic foods cannot be grown from GMO seeds and the only way it would (and does) contain GMOs is if it is contaminated with them during growth or processing.

yes. but not true always this again depend upon how is this food modified genetealy

Grape tomatoes are not known to have been genetically modified. Grape tomatoes may or may not be organic, depending on how they are grown. If they are grown using organic methods, they are organic. Natural when referring to food has not been defined. In the sense that grapes are grown in the soil, they are natural, but this does mean that they are organic or actually, anything else. Natural is a term that is used to sell products.

Local resources, natural inputs, and on-site activities are the differences between organic and non-organic farming. An organic farm does not employ chemical, genetically modified or non-synthetic controls or products to improve yields and prolong shelf life. It focuses upon the health of the soil and of soil food web members over artificially pleasing appearances and vast quantities of edibles and ornamentals.

You change your diet from non-organic to organic foods by only drinking and eating products that are labeled as organic without chemicals, genetically modified organisms and preservatives.

Commercial fertilizers and pesticides are not used in the production of organic green peppers. Neither are genetically modified organisms allowed. What with the organic devotion to healthy above and below ground environment, and to plant health care, organic green peppers have higher levels of nutrients such as vitamins. They also would have low or no levels of food additives and colorings.

Organic foods often do take longer to produce than non-organic foods because of disease susceptibility and the fact that they are not genetically modified (enhanced).

Most organic foods compare very favorably to genetically modified foods in nutritional value.

Genetically modified foods are produced in a lab by removing a gene from one species and forcibly inserting it into the DNA of a totally unrelated species. This is referred to as horizontal breeding which is not the same as vertical breeding that occurs in nature.

comfort food is simply prepared and assocciated with the sense of home or contentment. organic food refers to crops or livestocks that are grown on the farm without application of synthetic fetilizers or pesticides and without using genetically modified organisms.
